    Ok and hello to all,

    I spilled some liquid on one of my laptops , however I did immediately unplug it and followed all instructions on how to clean it. Left it to dry for about now 24hrs. However screen and display works fine but the tabs on the keyboard will not respond !!

    Could that be indeed the damage or could it be a setting issue ?? I have not yet attached an external keyboard but will do so soon.

    Any suggestions or experts out there ??

    Thanks for the time to read it.

    The board is damaged. No matter how well you try to dry it, some liquid can remain. In addition, after the liquid is gone, it often leaves behind a residue that can still short circuits or prevent connection. Get a new keyboard. Trying to fix that one will prove futile and time-consuming.
